10:34 EDTCAKE, DPZ, CMG, WEN, DRI, YUM, DNKN, EAT, PNRA, MCDNational Restaurant Association’s November RPI rose to 99.9
The National Restaurant Association announced its Restaurant Performance Index, or RPI, rose in November to 99.9. The RPI consists of two components - the Current Situation Index and the Expectations Index - and tracks the health of and outlook for the U.S. restaurant industry. The Current Situation Index stood at 99.8 in November – up 0.6 percent from 99.3 in October. Although restaurant operators reported net positive sales and traffic results in November, softness in the labor and capital spending indicators outweighed the performance, resulting in a Current Situation Index reading below 100 for the fourth time in the last five months. The Expectations Index stood at 100.0 in November – up 0.4 percent from October. Although November was an improvement over October’s reading of 99.7, it still signals that restaurant operators are uncertain about the business environment in the months ahead.
